Help me understand x times / week goals


I’ve just singed up yesterday and set up some goals.

One of them is a do-more with a setting of “5” “times” “weekly” (

Now there are a few things I don’t understand. Hopefully some of you more experienced users can help me understand if I’m doing something wrong:

  • Why is there a starting datapoint of “3” automatically inserted?
  • Why am I already close to derailment? I started yesterday (Monday) with a weekly goal of 5 so to my understanding I should be fine until Wed. even if I don’t do any walking, yet today I’m told that I need to do 1.43 walks today (which doesn’t make any sense in itself).

Maybe I’m using the wrong type of goal. What I’m trying to do is the following:

  • Be “forced” to go for a walk on any 5 days in a week.
  • Only one walk per day

Is this possible?

Something is definitely strange here. Not only did you start with a datapoint of 3 (it should start at 0), you are more than 1 unit below the road which should not be possible given a rate of 5/week.

Do more is the right type of goal, and should do exactly what you want, but something has gone wrong with the goal creation. You should email and they will be happy to straighten things out for you.

Thanks for the reply.

I think I’ve figured it out. In a fit of overeagerness I set the initial “days until derailment” to 0 which seems to have caused the weird situation. I’ve now deleted the goal and created a new one and that seems to work ok.
